Lots of Star Trek lately

For the last few weeks, I’ve been watching re-runs of ST:TNG on TV, mainly because the baby for some reason won’t stay sleeping in the afternoon unless I carry him.

It just hit me how the ship’s computer in the series, the one which contains information about almost anything and everything, can somewhat be replicated by Google these days :). Now they just have to make the search engine voice enabled, and we would have an early years model of the Enterprise’s computer system.

Fencing

I’ve always had this fascination with medieval times, especially with knights and swordfights. I always imagined living in those days, being part of a kingdom, fighting battles against evil forces, growing into an elite knight that is trusted by the king to the most important missions.

Well, we all know that’s not gonna happen anytime soon :). So I’m actually considering something more current that will allow me to at least enact the swordplay part, fencing. Don’t know why I’ve never thought about this before, but yesterday, while watching one episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation, where Captain Picard was practicing, I suddenly thought, “Hey, why not try fencing?”.

I’ve been looking around for some fencing tutorials and clubs where I could join a beginners session. When I have some free time, maybe I’ll go join a club and become a knight, err… fencer I mean :)
